The time for summer vacation is drawing to a close and it’s time to get the kids ready for the new school year. You stay busy gathering supplies, begin to return to an earlier bed time, and coordinate your schedule to accommodate recreational activities. There’s one more important step to keep in mind before getting the kiddos back to school: scheduling your child’s general dentistry checkup at Dooley Dental in Spring Lake, NJ.
The Importance of a Back to School Dental Checkup
Tooth decay is the single most common disease among American children aged 2 to 11. Even if you brush and floss your child’s teeth every morning and evening, their pearly whites still require extra preventive help from your dentist to stay healthy and strong. At Dooley Dental, our doctor and hygiene team offer a variety of children’s dentistry solutions to help protect little smiles from common childhood problems, including cavities and periodontal disease (also known as gum disease). We may suggest fluoride supplements and dental sealants to help protect and preserve tooth enamel during this integral phase of dental development.
General dentistry checkups also provide our doctor with the opportunity to check for any signs of alignment problems and other areas of concern. Every six months, this simple visit helps bolster your child’s overall oral health and wellness. It’s also a great time to ask Dr. Dooley any questions you may have about your child’s dental future; our office also offers orthodontic treatment for patients seeking straighter, healthier teeth and more attractive smiles.
